For more years than I care to remember I have been associated with the world of entertainment as an actor, broadcaster and speaker.
Two highlights are the launching of Anglia Television in Norwich and the commercial radio station Plymouth Sound in Plymouth.
As a youngster at school in Bath I failed miserably academically and on the field of sport, but I always had the leading part in school plays!
My sister married a Canadian, so I lived in Canada for seven years appearing regularly with the London Little Theatre at the Grand Theatre, London, Ontario.
As the entertainment world is so precarious I have had to accept other work as varied as a waiter to an attendant in a hospital morgue.
Around the age of forty, by pure chance, a new career started as a speaker and this has included eighteen cruises as the Guest Speaker on ships ranging from the ‘QE2’ to ‘Voyager’
About my talks...
I just stand and talk with no technical aids – they always go wrong! All my talks are true stories and it goes without saying they contain no crudity.
My duration is usually 50/60 minutes.
My basic fee is £60 plus petrol, however, for special events I charge more.
Usually, I am available on short notice and am prepared to travel anywhere in the UK.
